president obama. they're probably not sure about the united states. my hunch is as a result we've got some time. before 2013, again, i think the odds go at least even possibly higher. that either israel or quite conceivably the united states will feel compelled to act. that the risks and costs of all that of acting as great as they might be are potentially outweighed by the risks and costs of not acting. >> do you think that the united states is going to act? >> i think if the united states does act, it won't be about the ability to deter iran or not. i think it will be about the implications for other countries proliferating in the region. i think this president came to power talking about a global zero, wanting to actually get rid of nuclear weapons. if iran gets a nuclear weapon, saudi arabia is much more likely to get a nuclear weapon. and then you're looking at both egypt and turkey and the nuclearization of the entire region. so for this president, i think the decision to act would be more about the sense that if you get north korea getting a nuclear weapon and then iran getting a nu
obama of brazil? but first here's my take. president obama has sewed up the -- surged in the polls this week, and republicans have been quick to figure out the problem. mitt romney. peggy noonan said his rolling campaign has been a calamity. shouldn't it puz puzzle us that romney's campaign is so incompetent, given his reputation for, well, competence. after all he founded one of the leading firms, turned around the salt lake city olympics and was a very successful governor. how did he get so clumsy so fast? in fact, the problem is not romney. but the new republican party, given the direction it has moved and pressures from the extreme, powerful elements, any nominee would face the same challenge. can you be a serious candidate for the general election while not outraging the republican base? fox news anchor brit hume refused to dwell on romney's economic policies he would put in place. why wouldn't mitt romney fluent in economics explain his economic policy? because any sensible answer would cause a firestorm in his party. it's obvious with a deficit of more of 7% of gross domesti
mayny. >>> also, romney and obama seem to agree on outsourcing they both hate, actually they should both embrace it. i'll tell you why. but first here's my take. over the last week as we watched rage in the muslim world, people have asked why it's happening and because we're in a campaign season, that question has become a political one. some republicans say it is president obama's policies that have produced this atmosphere. he has projected weakness, offered olive branches and been naive. but think about it, had president obama kept 100,000 troops occupying iraq, would that have made people in the middle east happier with america. had he given a more combative speech three years ago would that have made radical islams stay at home last week? it has as much to do with the outbreak of protests over the last two weeks. it might be instructive to recall that after the 9/11 attacks, many asked the question why is there so much anger in the arab world, why do they hate us, and many serious scholars and journalists, myself included, have wrote extensively about the stagnation in arab countrie
